The unadulterated test results on this page come directly from these certificates of analysis from two independent labs, which we pay directly. These are two independent lab tests of one product, at one point in time. We do not guarantee that all products or labs will produce the same results. Lab results may differ based on the different methodologies of testing used by each lab or inconsistencies in the product. Added ingredients may affect lab results. Volume of creams and edibles may change due to factors such as temperature, and this may impact lab results. Learn more about our review process.

About the product

Garden of Life claims this is a broad-spectrum extract that contains the cannabinoids found in full-spectrum CBD, but without the THC.

Our lab tests found that this is predominately CBD with only trace levels of other cannabinoids. The trace levels of other cannabinoids found by lab A are below the “level of detection” used by lab B. Because the THC levels found by lab A are insignificant and not reported by lab B, we categorize Garden of Life’s THC claims as accurate and honest.

Like most broad-spectrum products, this product does not have significant levels of other cannabinoids.

We found that Garden of Life contained 7% to 11% more CBD than suggested by their label, which is considered accurate for CBD products.

This is a CBD oil that can be taken sublingually (under the tongue) or orally (solo or with a food or drink).
